Wow, covering the superbowl was the most physically intense story I've done in quite some time! I did end up pulling my estimated 20 hour day. A good chunk of it was spent speed walking with gear, practically non-stop, searching for celebrities. I must have walked 10 miles! We did have great success in the celeb department:
Ashton Kutcher and Demi Moore
William H. Macy
When Prince performed his halftime show he opened with 'let's get crazy'. That song is an inside joke (and, sorry all, it will remain inside. haha) between my friend Nicole and me. So I called her up and shouted into the phone: "I'm at the superbowl! Prince just took the stage! He's singing 'let's get nuts'!". It was difficult to hear her, but I believe she turned on the tv and exclaimed "Oh my god! You're not joking!". Then the call dropped. I think I'll call her back after I finish with da blogging. :)
I think one of the funniest moments at the superbowl happened in the ladies room. I was waiting outside as I was not in need of a pitstop... Everybody who came out had an expression on their face that said something unbelievable was going on inside. My curiosity peeked and I decided maybe a pitstop was in order-- but the police showed up and wouldn't let anybody else in. My reporter came out with the same look on her face:
Me: What is going on in there?
Her: Oh my gosh, when you walk in there the first thing you see is the first stall door wide open, a woman is sitting there with her pants down to the ground and she's passed out. People thought she might be dead and were trying to wake her, but then she started snoring.
Another interesting, yet unrelated, observation: There was a long line for the Men's room and no line for the Women's room.
